ROAD TRIP! Indiana ‘Bookstore Tourism’ Limited Only By Your Imagination

Staying “stateside” this Spring Break?

Worried your formula of Netflix, ABC Family, and video games will fall apart by Wednesday?

And no, the re-introduction of naptime for your 10 and 13 year-old probably won’t work.

So while your neighbors galavant in Southern Florida, Indiana’s independent book stores will welcome you with open arms, and well, open books! Many are brand new to the local scene while still others have survived the supposed death knell TV, Online mega-sites, huge bricks-and-mortar competitors and yes even the iPad by plugging into the community with an authentic partnership.
